Michael F. Cauley
President, Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
Mike Cauley and Dottie, his wife, served in pastoral ministry for 15 years in the Southern Union. In January 1993, Mike accepted a call to serve as Executive Secretary and Ministerial Director of Pennsylvania Conference. Two years later, he was elected Conference President in Pennsylvania. While in Pennsylvania, Mike began a doctorate in executive leadership which he completed in 2006. He led the Conference to adopt a change process whereby they began to treat their large territory as a mission field. Church planting, treating evangelism as an ongoing process, and revitalizing small churches were among the areas of focus.
In 2003, Mike was elected Florida Conference President. Since that time, he has introduced a process for training life coaches and developing leaders. He has a passion to see men and women grow to reach their God-given potential.
Mike and Dottie Cauley have two children. Michael, with his wife, Ashley, is serving as a pastor in Franklin, Tennessee. Their daughter, Kelly, is working on a doctorate in clinical psychology and resides with her husband, Brandon Rivinius, in Loma Linda, California.
